Ebay funny sad story

RE: Ebay funny sad story
What really annoys me when a seller says he cant sell it for less than the asking price or he will not break even on the case/box they bought. If someone is buying cases or boxes to make money, its a losing battle 90% of the time. Holding onto that excess inventory depleats their cash flow and they arent able to buy new "hot " product.

Case in point....I really wanted a Jordan Shadow Box Auto. I hate auctions and i usually use the buy it now option. So I find a seller had one listed for $600. I offered him $450 which is fair and he said he would not go under $550 because he had to break even on the case he bought. These cards sell for between $400 and $450, so i offered him the high side and I dont have to worry about being sniped on an auction. He still has the card for sale and as Upper Deck floods the market with more and more Jordan Auto's his value will just decrease.

I did end up getting my shadow box at a local card show for $400. the dealer and I looked up what they were going or on ebay. We figured $425. If he sold the card he is paying ebay and paypal close to $50 in fees. so we split the difference and he gave it to me for $400. He wanted $500 originally for the card, but he was happy to get some cash then holding onto the card for 6 months. Now he can go out and buy more cards!
